The Historian
by Elizabeth Kostova

Date Completed: March 16th, 2006

Review written 2006-06-25

I have the same problem with my book reviews as I do with my movie reviews... I tend to update the list when I finish a book, but I put off the book review. It's much harder to write a book review months after finishing the book!

Several friends had recommended this book to me. I really enjoyed it. Although it deals with Dracula, it reads more like historical fiction than fantasy. I've learned that I'm a fan of historical fiction! I've heard some people dub this book as "one of the best books I've ever read." I can't say that I would put the book into that category, but I did think that it was great and I would recommend it.
